Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#2. Science cannot tell theology how to construct a doctrine of creation, but you can't construct a doctrine of creation without taking account of the age of the universe and the evolutionary character of cosmic history. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by Sereno Sky
#3. If you don't know which road to take in life: do what's loving. Take a path that is loving, with yourself and towards others. That's the only path leading to light. If it's loving, it builds up, if not, it will only tear down. #Quote by Sereno Sky
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#4. Nevertheless, all of us who work in quantum physics believe in the reality of a quantum world, and the reality of quantum entities like protons and electrons. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#5. The test of a theory is its ability to cope with all the relevant phenomena, not its a priori 'reasonableness'. The latter would have proved a poor guide in the development of science, which often makes progress by its encounter with the totally unexpected and initially extremely puzzling. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#7. Of course, Einstein was a very great scientist indeed, and I have enormous respect for him, and great admiration for the discoveries he made. But he was very committed to a view of the objectivity of the physical world. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#10. Theology differs from science in many respects, because of its different subject matter, a personal God who cannot be put to the test in the way that the impersonal physical world can be subjected to experimental enquiry. Yet science and theology have this in common, that each can be, and should be defended as being investigations of what is, the search for increasing verisimilitude in our understanding of reality. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#11. After all, the universe required ten billion years of evolution before life was even possible; the evolution of the stars and the evolving of new chemical elements in the nuclear furnaces of the stars were indispensable prerequisites for the generation of life. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#12. People, and especially theologians, should try to familiarize themselves with scientific ideas. Of course, science is technical in many respects, but there are some very good books that try to set out some of the conceptual structure of science. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#13. Science and religion ... are friends, not foes, in the common quest for knowledge. Some people may find this surprising, for there's a feeling throughout our society that religious belief is outmoded, or downright impossible, in a scientific age. I don't agree. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that if people in this so-called 'scientific age' knew a bit more about science than many of them actually do, they'd find it easier to share my views. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by Sereno Dwight
#14. mind. I was pretty much affected by the discourse we had together; and when the discourse was ended, I walked abroad alone, in a solitary place in my father's pasture, for contemplation. And as I was walking there, and looking upon the sky and clouds, there #Quote by Sereno Dwight
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#15. Bottom up thinkers try to start from experience and move from experience to understanding. They don't start with certain general principles they think beforehand are likely to be true; they just hope to find out what reality is like. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#16. I'm a very passionate believer in the unity of knowledge. There is one world of reality - one world of our experience that we're seeking to describe. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne

Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#21. When you realize that the laws of nature must be incredibly finely tuned to produce the universe we see, that conspires to plant the idea that the universe did not just happen, but that there must be a purpose behind it. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#22. So Whitehead's metaphysics doesn't fit very well on to physics as we understand the process of the world. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#23. Hope is much more than a mood. It involves a commitment to action ... What we hope for should be what we are prepared to work for ... as far as that power lies in us. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#24. If the physicists seem to achieve their ends more successfully than the theologians, that is simply a reflection of how much easier science is than theology. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#25. The remarkable insights that science affords us into the intelligible workings of the world cry out for an explanation more profound than that which itself can provide. Religion, if it is to take seriously its claim that the world is the creation of god, must be humble enough to learn from science what that world is actually like. The dialogue between them can only be mutually enriching. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#26. Quantum theory also tells us that the world is not simply objective; somehow it's something more subtle than that. In some sense it is veiled from us, but it has a structure that we can understand. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#27. Claims for the
occurrence of miraculous events will have to be evaluated on
a case-by-case basis. There can be no general theory to cover
the character of unique events, but the refusal to contemplate
the possibility of revelatory disclosures of an unprecedented
kind would be an unacceptable limitation, imposed arbitrarily
on the horizons of religious thought. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#28. It is the faithfulness of God that allows epistemology to model ontology. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#29. Those theologians who are beginning to take the doctrine of creation very seriously should pay some attention to science's story. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#30. As a consequence, scientists who are carefully reflective
about their activity do not instinctively ask the question 'Is it
reasonable?' as if they were confident beforehand what shape
rationality had to take. We have noted how 'unreasonable', in
classical Newtonian terms, the nature of light turned out to
be. Instead, for the scientist the proper phrasing of the truth-
seeking question takes the form, 'What makes you think that
might be the case? #Quote by John Polkinghorne
Polkinghorne And Sereno quotes by John Polkinghorne
#31. The physical fabric of the world had to be such as to enable that ten billion year preliminary evolution to produce the raw materials of life. Without it there would not have been the chemical materials to allow life to evolve here on earth. #Quote by John Polkinghorne
